In this article, we'll explore the advantages and disadvantages of worm and bevel gears to help you determine which will work best for your application. Choosing between worm gears and. bevel gears can make a huge impact on efficiency and operating costs.
Industrial applications all over the world rely on gearboxes to reduce motor speed, change rotational direction and change shaft orientation.
Gearboxes from NORD Drivesystems are suitable for many types of machinery and can be mounted with NEMA C-Face or IEC adapters or free input shaft designs, depending on the application needs. NORD gearboxes are also available as fully integrated gearmotors, which offer many advantages when compared to alternative options, such as:
Variable frequency drives (also called "VFDs," "AC vector drives," "inverters" or "variable speed drives") can be thought of as a motor controller that operates the motor by changing the applied voltage and frequency to the motor. A VFD can control the speed of a motor, as well as how it starts and stops. One advantage of using a VFD is it limits the inrush (starting) current, which is easier on the motor.
According to Electrical Construction and Maintenance Magazine, variable frequency drives are "the most effective motor controller in the industry today."
